Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Sunnyvale, CA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great company, Good work-life balance, competitive benefits and salaries. Company has a great culture of GIVING to the community.

Cons

Annual performance review is based on relative rating with your peers within your team and with your other peers across the teams. Since it is relative and the performance curve is forced, some % of people have to fall in all the buckets of rating(1,2,3,4,5). Due to this, peers don't help each other much which results in lack of team collaboration.
